Hi everyone After reading all of this thread, I am positive all of you guys and girls can break 1.30, a few tweaks and you could all see positive results...
Unfortunately easy running will not get you their though Firstly you will all need to enter more half marathons, a lot can go wrong at this distance so confidence and being comfortable with running this distance is huge. It took me 4 attempts to get under 1.30.
If sub 1.30 is your goal then consistent 25+ miles a week with at least one interval session/hill session and one long run session is a must
You all know you can do it, its the leap into the unknown which is the big step
Hi, I registered for the Edinburgh Marathon this year but after an injury in the Frankfurt Marathon lastyear, I am still not back to running (still waiting for a mri scan not good)...so with regret I am pulling out of the marathon so I would like to offer my place to another runner. I paid around ??50 for the place, I know I wont get that back and dont expect too, I know however that whoever takes the place has to pay a ??10 transfer fee. I will accept ??20 for the place so total you pay is ??30...I feel that is fair as it is sold out...I really don't want my place going to waste so please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Due to injury I am looking to sell my Edinburgh Marathon place...not looking for full price back so please feel free to make an offer. Gutted im having to sell but don't want it going to waste. Email me at email@example.com if interested. Cheers
With the stress fractures, what are everyones symptoms? I ran in the Frankfurt marathon last October and I am still in pain, physio reckons I have tibial tendonosis...but I am sceptical on this, symptoms include:
Sore to touch in one place on the tibia bone Also have aches along the tendon from below the knee to the foot. About a month ago, I was getting very strange heat sensations in the foot. Also had pins and needles in the foot.
I do not have any pain whilst walking although I know it is still there, hardly any pain whilst running but when I rest it is painful and very achy. Have tried all the usual stretches the physio gives out and have also had 8 weeks total rest over the christmas period, it just does not seem to be shifting any ideas?
This will be my 3rd marathon...unfortunately I have tendenitis so training is only just beginning but I am looking forward to it - I think I ran the Edinburgh half last year and it was hot so really hoping it is not too hot this year. I live 30 miles away and it is a rariety for it to be that hot Hope everyones training is going well and be good to chat with you all as we get ever closer and share our training highs and lows.
